    OUR GLOBAL AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

    We have now launched our Global Ambassador programme offering 1 million shares in the business for £150,000. We aim to sign up an elite group of the world’s leading entrepreneurs over the next 24 months.

     

    Global Ambassadors will have a key role to play in the company’s future development and will have a permanent place on the Bold Minds advisory board which will meet virtually four times a year and in person annually.

     

    Once a year we will host our Annual Conference at the home of each Global Ambassador, rotating this annually.

     

    Each Global Ambassador will have a dedicated filming schedule based on them and their various business interests.

     

    Our production team will visit each Global Ambassador and film content for our 'day in the life of' series where we document what it's like to live the life of a successful global entrepreneur.

     

    Andrew Grant our Founder & Chairman will bring our film crew to the location of your choice where we will spend two days with you to film a day in your life before we edit this into a 40 minute showcase that tells the story of how you got to where you are to inspire a future army of entrepreneurs.

     

    Global Ambassadors will also receive two complimentary tickets to our annual St Andrews Day Black Tie Dinner at Edinburgh Castle plus an annual invitation to a private dinner and Bold Minds VIP box at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo hosted by ex-Messenger of Arms to the Palace of Westminster Brigadier General Peter Grant Peterkin.

     

    Global Ambassadors will play a vital role in how we develop the business and help our production teams with introductions to contributors we can interview for the channel. In addition Global Ambassadors will get free tickets to all events plus, a seat at the AGM, held at our annual Global Conference and be named on the Bold Minds website as one of our Global Ambassadors plus they will receive annual dividend payouts.

    OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY AND EQUALITY

    While you can learn to become a great business person we believe some people are born to become entrepreneurs. But all too often the odds are stacked against those who come from disadvantaged areas and backgrounds. However just because you are born on the wrong side of the tracks doesn't mean to say you can’t one day end up buying the tracks, leasing them back to the folk that didn’t believe in you and knocking down the divide to provide affordable housing and providing new opportunities for people who got the same start in life as you.

     

    That's why we are launching out 'Give Something Back' program in the host city or country of every Ambassador . We will deliver a ongoing outreach program of real world and online workshops and motivational events for young people aged between 16 and 18 with a view to exposing them to people who came from similar backgrounds as them, who have gone on to build successful businesses, as well as giving them the tools to follow in their footsteps and connecting them with meteors and funding to break the poverty trap and motivate an army of would be entrepreneurs to save the world.
